Editor Tenses Gazette,

Dear Sir--My attention is called to an
article in your paper last week in regard
to schedule into Natchez.
If you will kindly advise me the date
of this oecurrence I will take pleasure in
C. B. BaowNsLL, G. A.
The following letter was addresed to
a proninent citizen of St. Joseph who
referred same to the Gazette:
Herewith I hand you cpy of letter ad
dressed to the editor of the Teness Ga

appreciate your seeing that I an, sup

There is a misapprehension in regard
to handling of these trains, and if we can
be furnished with the exact date, will
take plasure in investigation and write
you a lull explanation.
The Natchea & Southern does not par
pose delaying these trains, but there are
reasons sometimes why thee

C. B. Baowxtsz., A. G.
In reply to the above request from Mr.
C. B. Brownell, Vice President and len
eral Manager of the Natc'es & Southern
Railway, asking speci of the M.,
II. & L. train being on the Mis
sissippi side of t Vidalia to
Natchez, ae think he get more gen
eral information bly examining the report
of the train crew who, we believe, are
required to sign a register, showing time
of arrival, and that said register will
prove thatonur contention is correct.
We know that one member of the
switching crew on the Natchez side said
they pay little attention to the M., HI. &
L. train reports, as too often when re
ported only ten or fifteen minutes late
they are realy fort$ to fity minutes late
and thaut it m br for a train already

On Saturday, November 1MBh, when
the M., H. AL train left St. Joseph
there were fie pssengers who told the
conductor they were anxiom to eatch the
Miasimippi Central 1:60 p. m. train.
Notwithstanding this the trai stayed
in Ferriday, coaling, so aid, between
fifteen and twenty minutes, proceeded
l eisurely to Vidalia, and was transferred
very quickly after getting on barge. The
tag blew for the engine after reaching
the Mimiasippi side at 1:54 p. m.'aMd the
New Orleans bound tourists beard their
M. C. train pulling out of Natche'sand
did not themselves reach the depot until
three o'clock. This wq can substantiate
by Capt. Rob't. Worrell of St. Joseph,
and Mr. Win. B. Mangum, late of East
Carroll and who has vreently acquired
the "Minnehaha" plantation in this par
lbh. There was also a traimld nurse
aboard from New orleans, returning
Again on Sunday, December 3rd, the
traifer left the \'idalia side at 1:44 p.

the Natchez side at 1:51, twenty-four
